Pisa is one of those iconic Italian landmarks we have all heard of and to have the opportunity to visit Pisa from Florence makes it that much easier to snap the famous trick photo of you holding up the leaning tower.
This daily exploration will take you through the Tuscan countryside from Florence to Pisa where you will have tickets to see that famous Cathedral, Leaning Tower and the Piazza dei Miracoli.
Your guide will introduce you to the amazing history of the monuments. Learn how the tower began to lean after construction and how the area was the political center of the Middle Ages. Today Pisa is a university town with the Scuola Normale one of the most popular schools in Europe.
After the guided tour you will have free time to explore on your own, not only the monuments but the town itself. The area around the monuments can be overflowed with people selling trinkets but if you go about a 15 min walk away from the tourist area you begin to enter the university district with local café’s, restaurants and interesting shops.
As the day trip to Pisa comes to an end you will travel back through the Tuscan countryside back to Florence in time for a relaxing evening.
